Miley Cyrus and Dolly Parton are reuniting to host “Miley’s New Yr’s Eve Get together” in celebration of 2023’s arrival, however their New Yr’s collaboration is way from the primary time the pair can have shared a stage or expressed their love for one another. Cyrus offered Parton with the first-ever hitmaker award at Billboard’s Ladies in Music occasion in 2020, describing Parton as her “very valuable fairy godmother” in a heartfelt tribute speech. Earlier that very same yr, Parton instructed Marie Claire she at all times knew Cyrus was destined for greatness. “I like Miley. I believe she’s nice. She’s on the market, and I like that she takes her probabilities,” she mentioned. “I like that she’s true to herself and that she’s keen to strive new issues and do no matter. I’ve at all times liked her, since she was little, and I knew she was particular. She simply had a lightweight about her. Her sparkle, and her smile, and her eyes have been at all times stuffed with marvel.”
Beforehand, Cyrus was a part of Parton’s epic tribute efficiency in the course of the 2019 Grammys, throughout which Parton sang the entire finest jams from the unimaginable “Dumplin'”soundtrack together with a complete host of particular visitors together with Katy Perry, Little Large City, Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, and naturally, Cyrus. Only a week earlier than, Cyrus teamed up with Shawn Mendes for the MusiCares Individual of the Yr gala (which was held in honor of Parton) to sing Parton and Kenny Roger’s 1983 music “Islands within the Stream.” Earlier than the occasion, Cyrus even posted a candy photograph of her and Parton on Instagram with the caption, “It is YOUR night time Aunt @dollyparton! Past deserved!”
Clearly, the pair share a particular relationship. So, all of it begs the query: are the 2 really associated?
As shut as the 2 are (and as related as they could sound at instances!), Parton is definitely Cyrus’s godmother, not a blood relation. We completely perceive the confusion, although — Parton even made a number of cameo appearances taking part in Cyrus’s godmother on Disney’s “Hannah Montana,” although she was known as “Aunt Dolly” then, too. Her relationship with Cyrus stems from a long-lasting friendship with the pop star’s dad, fellow musician Billy Ray Cyrus, and simply as Cyrus at all times helps the music legend, Parton at all times has her goddaughter’s again in flip.
When Cyrus confronted criticism for her provocative outfits and performances again in 2013, Parton mentioned Cyrus was smarter than folks believed and wanted an opportunity to search out her personal manner, simply as Parton herself had. “She’s simply looking for her personal place and wings and be taught to fly,” she instructed Night Customary on the time. We would say all the things turned out simply superb, so maybe godmother does know finest. Try the gallery for photos of the 2 gifted girls through the years.
